Looks like Carrie Bradshaw is still dishing out her amazing love advice! Former Sex and the City leading lady Sarah Jessica Parker is finally speaking her mind when it comes to the notorious love life of one of TV's most celebrated characters. The HBO series alum is spilling all the details on whether or not everyone's favorite sex columnist should have actually ended up with Mr. Big!

Whether you were Team Aidan or Team Big, it's hard to forget the iconic City Hall scene where one of TV's most coveted characters marries the man of her dreams, whom she's been dramatically dating for an entire show's series. Bradshaw's famous real-life counterpart is finally weighing in when it comes to the decision of whether or not Sex and the City 's iconic leading lady should have walked down the aisle to Mr. Big. "As I recall, the way Carrie and Big married was something she wanted," the actress told Yahoo Style on Monday. "Rather than [Carrie] feeling that life was slipping away and she best settle quickly. I don't think of it as someone diminishing herself by letting a man marry her - it always felt that she had arrived at that on her own." Girl power all the way!

But what does Sex and the City's original creator, Darren Star, think of Bradshaw's ultimate marriage decision? The creative mastermind recently spilled his thoughts on the fact that one of TV's most iconic couples should have never actually tied the knot. "I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage," Star said recently during a Kindle Singles interview. "At the end, it became a conventional romantic comedy. But unless you're there to write every episode, you're not going to get the ending you want."

After hearing the creator's ultimate disagreements towards the show's end, Parker channeled her iconic role to bring a positive light to one of HBO's legendary chronicles of New York City. The 50-year-old fashion icon recently told Yahoo, "The beauty is we can all have lots and lots of opinions about lots of choices Carrie made, that we object to, or that we stand by."

Meanwhile, the talented actress is taking a major turn from her romance-seeking role as Bradshaw while working on a new HBO series that focuses on divorce, according to Us Weekly. "I had been working on this idea for a long time and developing it with HBO," said Parker as the Divorce series creator. Parker added, "You know, the particular landscape of divorce and the story of a marriage is really interesting to me because it's so complicated."

We wonder what Carrie Bradshaw would have to say about that!
